Tariko May Buy Nemiroff

Billionaire Rustam Tariko’s Russian Standard is in talks to buy Nemiroff, a Ukrainian vodka producer, Kommersant reported, citing an investment banker and a person close to one of the bidders.

Nemiroff’s owners plan to choose a buyer by the end of August, the newspaper said. Other interested parties include Central European Distribution Corp., owner of Russian Alcohol Group; Brown-Forman Corp.; Pernod-Ricard, which makes Absolut vodka and Chivas Regal whiskey; and Poland’s Stock Spirits, Kommersant said.
